A Mumbai court today adjourned till tomorrow the hearing on Enforcement Directorate’s application seeking remand of Pune-based businessman Hasan Ali Khan, pulling up the probe agency for not making a proper case for his custody on money laundering charges.

The Principal Sessions Court Judge, Mr M.L. Tahaliyani, adjourned the hearing after asking the ED to do some “homework’’.

“You have not been able to make any case and you want me to hear you. If you want to do some homework, you can take time,” the Judge said before adjourning the proceedings.

Khan, also a real estate consultant and owner of race horses, was arrested on Monday midnight under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act after prolonged searches at his premises in Pune and here and sustained interrogation.

He is alleged to have stashed over $8 billion in Swiss banks besides having links to international arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi. He is also facing charges of tax evasion of over Rs 40,000 crore.
